There are moments when life seems to stand still, and everything is suddenly different from before. An accident, a diagnosis, an illness that completely changes your life. Victims find a strength that leaves others astounded. They give hope; like young Christian Kandlhofer, who has lost both arms but still works in a garage. There's also Elisabeth Marx, who suffers from Parkinson's disease but carries on painting. These are courageous people who tell their stories and encourage others to carry on.
